HR Conclave Samavesh- 2016

HR beyond 2020

Samavesh means ‘inclusion’. The HR department in any organization is meant to involve people in different job functions, organizational roles and processes for best results expected by stakeholders. The human resource management function has evolved very much from administrative control to human involvement by improving knowledge and practices in sync with new technology development. SPM’s Samavesh is a forum to discuss emerging challenges being faced by HR thinkers and practitioners across industries. Samavesh also means to include HR academicians and practitioners in a symbiotic process for preparing HR managers to handle critical human challenges in 21st century organizations beyond 2020.
